Mobile apps for the rail industry
Nutshell is helping to streamline planning, delivery, and safety reporting in the rail industry, for a safer and more compliant work environment whether on or near the line.
Going digital to improve planning and delivery in rail
Safe systems of work are at the core of every rail project, but inefficiencies in planning, briefing, and daily safety reporting is leading to inefficient and unsafe work.
From speaking to rail professionals everyday, we know that manual paper processes are responsible for a fair chunk of lost time accidents as well as design snags, plan deviations, and eventual NCRs.
Nutshell helps you manage these mission-critical rail processes with Network Rail-standard mobile apps that can be implemented instantly and then customised to match your very specific processes. What’s more, data is administrated instantly, so risks can be mitigated far quicker than ever before.

” The old days of lever-arch files and illegible handwriting are numbered. It’s estimated that over the next five years more than 100,000 mobile apps will need to be created for the rail industry alone. “
Save time. Save money. Save lives.
In association with OnTrac, the UK’s leading software solutions partner to the rail industry, Nutshell is at the forefront of this revolutionary digital transformation initiative, providing the mobile capability behind the suite of groundbreaking apps at its core.
Rail Hub is OnTrac’s fully digital, end-to-end solution based on the 019 Standard. It’s already used by most of the Network Rail supply chain to manage and report on the Safe System of Work planning process, to the very latest compliance standards.
The reasons to invest in Rail Hub are obvious:
- Save time – reducing a 2 hour process to less than 10 minutes
- Save money – pays for itself within 2-3 months on paper costs alone
- Save lives – over a million safe work packs per year and not a single life lost
